Doug Bergqvist moved from Stockholm to England and played school-age football with  Reading and Queens Park Rangers, before joining Aldershot Town in 2009. He made his senior debut for  the Shots in May 2011 before having loan spells at Farnborough and Basingstoke Town. 

On leaving Aldershot at the end of 2012/13, Doug signed for Exeter City on 30 June only to be loaned to Welling United on 4 July 2013 when pre-season preparations had barely begun. Doug was never to return to St James Park and, after seven months at Welling, his loan was terminated so that he could return to Sweden to sign a a two-year contract with Östersunds FK. 

During his five seasons at Östersunds, Doug won a Swedish Cup winners’ medal in 2017 and spent time on loan with Haugesand for whom he appeared in a Norwegian Cup final. He later played for Arka Gdynia (Poland) and Kalmar FF (Sweden) before a loan move to Chornomorets Odesa was cancelled because of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Doug then spent the 2022 season playing for Riga in Latvia as his team finished as runners-up in the top division.
